Michelin Star Dining Presentation and Top Class Service

We decided to have our wedding last minute and had only four weeks to plan the whole thing! Julie at Window’s Catering was the first one to respond to us and take us on. I am from Bangladesh and was absolutely clueless on how to plan a wedding in the US and that too in such a short time. She not only guided me with everything in regards to catering but also helped me come up with ideas and themes and even provided me with someone from her company to help me coordinate everything leading up to the wedding and on the wedding day.

The food was incredible! The presentation was outstanding and everything looked like it was Michelin star! We had an amazing list of hors d'oeuvre that had lots of bright colors and were presented in unique ways, a 3- course dinner, followed by an incredible list of desserts. She allowed me to change seating charts and dinner options until the day before the wedding which was so helpful since everything was so last minute. We were meant to have a s’mores station since we thought the weather would be cold, but we got lucky and got warm weather the day of and she quickly changed that to pass around mini ice cream cones and the guests loved it! She was available pre and post wedding whenever we needed. I can’t recommend them enough! BEST BEST BEST!

There are a lot of good caterers in the Washington area, but there are just a few that can be said to be truly spectacular ... and Windows is one of them. You just cannot go wrong on food by Windows.

I had the privilege of working with Windows Catering at a wedding in November 2016 and everything was perfect! The food tasted great, the buffet display was lovely and inviting, the staff was pleasant and professional. It was also a joy to work with Cynthia and Ashley leading up to the wedding. They were both helpful at the walkthrough, with menu choices, seating chart and ensuring that everything ran on schedule. Thank you for such a wonderful job! Look forward to working with you in the future.

Windows is a top choice for us to recommend to our brides. Their event managers are on top of details and help keep everyone on the same page in planning stages. Their food is fantastic and their staff is phenomenal during the events.
